Presentations

 Test Paddling Kayaks on the Showroom Floor

Caribou - upstairs Sat 9:30am-10:15am 

It's always best to choose a kayak by test paddling it in the conditions in which you plan to use it, but that's not always possible. What can you realistically learn about a kayak when looking at it in the store? From fit to function, there is actually quite a bit that you can infer about a boat before deciding to put it on your short list for test paddling. Sherri Mertz will share a wealth of personal experience from her years of paddling, teaching, buying, and selling kayaks.
